Seahouses and North Sunderland : our friendly and useful community and trades website.
In case you're curious too ...
It hasn't been immediately obvious why holes were being dug in our harbour! Enquiries were instituted with the authority of seahouseswebsite. Apparently the latest improvements being carried out include upgrading the electrical lighting and power systems, with advantages in terms of convenience, reliability and safety. The improvements were becoming visible by mid-August, right.
SEAHOUSES VILLAGE NOW HAS ITS OWN
ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING POINT
Greener travellers to Seahouses are now assured of their ability to return home, thanks to the Electric Vehicle Charging Point located in the heart of the main car park.
LATE ARRIVAL OF KITTIWAKE CHICK
It has not been a good year for sea-bird breeding. Chief suspect is a shortage of suitable food species out at sea - for whatever reason. Nest building was normal, but egg laying was very late and apparently sparse. The first and only chick spotted on the golf course cliffs so far was on the 6th of June. And by the looks of it, it had already succumbed to something deadly. O dear.
SUE RYDER BOAT TRIP
Thanks to Billy Shiel Ltd there were indeed GLAD TIDINGS for the special "Ride For Ryder" evening boat trip around - and landing on - the Farne Islands, with all fares in aid of the Sue Ryder charity. All aboard in doubtful weather, it was then off to enjoy some late sunshine seeing the bird sanctuaries and seal colonies at first hand.
SEAHOUSES / SUE RYDER CALENDAR 2015
NOW ON SALE
The 2015 edition of the Seahouses Calendar is now available from the Sue Ryder charity shop at 11 Main Street, Seahouses, between Pinnacles and the Olde Ship Hotel at the sea end of the village. Produced locally, well over half the cover price of £4.95 is retained by the charity.
Twelve iconic Seahouses pictures adorn the cover: each then features on its own month display along with public holidays and other events, leaving space for your own appointments and notes. A plain white envelope is included.

SEAHOUSES TEA TOWEL
FOR SALE AROUND THE VILLAGE
For the first time ever, so far as we can learn, there is now a purpose-designed SEAHOUSES TEA TOWEL. Rather larger than your average kitchen accessory, it measures 20" wide and 30" long. Photographic images show a boat trip "To the Farne Islands and Holy Island"; "North Beach"; "Thrift"; "Busy harbour in the centre of the village"; "Orchid"; "Smoke-house kippers"; "Fresh sea food" lobster; "Angler boat"; "Countryside too" across farmland to the Cheviots; "Beach rides"; "South beach"; "Railway walk"; and "RNLB Grace Darling".
Stockists include Drift and Polka Dot in the Main Street centre of the village; Swallow Fish in South Street just off the Coast Walk route; and the Tourist Information Centre on the main car park. The concensus indicates a retail price of £4.99 each.
